A MESSAGE FROM THE COMMODORE
 
To all parents and grandparents with young children.
Our Friday night dinner is one of the club’s most popular events and we would like to see more of you attend. The food is always great as is the socializing with other members. We want to make it easier for families and grandparents with young children to attend and enjoy  the evening. To help make this happen we will be showing movies on Friday nights on our brand new 60″ TV.  The TV will set up in the Regatta room which will give you the option to dine as a family prior to the movie.  When the Regatta room is being used for a major event movies will be shown in the family room. Clancy Powell has agreed to choose this movie for this Friday.
So, please join your fellow members this Friday and enjoy the evening knowing your young ones are being entertained. . Watch for the menu announcement.

Path to the Podium

2013 Olympic Sailing Night Series Announced

Path to the Podium Poster Unveiled

 Portsmouth, R.I. (June 18, 2013) – This summer young sailors will learn first-hand about the many pathways to Olympic sailing success as Olympians, medalists, coaches and leaders from the U.S. Olympic Sailing Program—such as JJ Fetter, Josh Adams, Andrew Campbell, Luther Carpenter and Leandro Spina—speak during “Olympic Sailing Night”, a series of speaking events held in collaboration with US Sailing’s national junior championship events. The series began during the California International Sailing Association (CISA) Advanced Racing Clinic, in April, and included nights during the Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) National Championships and Sail Newport’s Brooke E. Gonzalez Advanced Racing Clinic. Full details are available on line at http://bit.ly/OSNight13

“Central to our long-term strategy is building the base of high-performance sailors in this country,” said Josh Adams, Managing Director of U.S. Olympic Sailing. “We feel that it is important young sailors with Olympic sailing aspirations hear first-hand how they can chart their own Olympic pathway. We have put together a knowledgeable slate of speakers, and look forward to meeting and working with the many youth sailors looking to represent Team USA in 2020, 2024 and beyond.”

In addition to the speaking series, sailors at US Sailing’s USA Junior Olympic Sailing Festivals will receive a “Path to the Podium” poster outlining the various pathways in Olympic sailing. The poster focuses on three key stages, beginning with “skill builders”, the many junior classes and organizations across US Sailing that successfully draw thousands of young Americans into sailboat racing. The next critical stage features the six Olympic development classes endorsed by the Olympic Sailing Committee. The third stage is Olympic class training and racing at the level of US Sailing Team Sperry Top-Sider. In its 17th season, USA Junior Olympic Sailing Festivals is a nationwide series of regattas for youth, ages 8 to 21. There are 23 regattas slated for 2013 and over 4,000 sailors are expected to participate. Sailors can download the poster in PDF format here.

The four upcoming events are open to competitors at each of the youth championships. Regatta information, including a list of competitors, is available online at http://championships.ussailing.org/Youth.htm
